"Mr Paul Brettell,
Badminton Australia

Dear Paul,

I write in regards to the visit by two of your Olympic Athletes, Leanne Choo and Glenn Warfe before their participation in the 2012 London Olympic Games.

The staff and students at St James the Apostle Primary School, were extremely excited and overwhelmed in meeting the two athletes. The students thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to listen to the athletes talk about their lives and the dedication that is needed to achieve such success, as well as the concept of fair play, that the Olympics represent. It was amazing to see the enthusiasm of the children when given the opportunity to ask the athletes questions about their school life, sporting life, international travel and sporting successes.

During the Olympics, all the children were following the players with a keen interest, as they felt connected to them. As a result of this, many children would come in each day with some kind of Badminton news from the previous days activities.

Please pass on our sincere thanks to Leanne, Glenn and Badminton Australia for this unique experience. It was a fabulous learning opportunity for the students and one that they will keep with them for the rest of their lives.

Staff and Students at St James the Apostle Primary School, Hoppers Crossing."
